    Between Rahman's "Slumdog pop" on Mahiya (deluxe edition), Marley's melodic island jam, Miracle Worker, and Stone's vocal acrobatics fluttering around Jagger and Stewart and adding big choruses to Energy, the album's all over the place and never dull.

    If the songs sometimes feel a bit undercooked, the spirit is dazzling.

    This collaboration between one unequivocal superstar and four bright lights from disparate fields--Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian Marley and A.R. Rahman--yields enough inspired results to ward off fears of any cross-cultural train wrecks.

    If SuperHeavy never quite answers that question [What the f--- is going on?], the group certainly has fun dodging it in bluesy soul-rock jams smeared with reggae grooves and Bollywood strings.

    Everything Mick Jagger touches turns to **** unless Keith Richards is there to turn it back to gold.

Actually, I do really like this album, minus all the parts with Mick singing. Although he sounds like good ole 70's him in Never Going to Happen. Listen to Miracle Worker; it's is probably the best sample from this album. Full Review »

    Rare is an album that I listen to repeatedly from the start, and this is one of them !

I sincerely get the vibe that they are having fun, which isn't often to come across musically, with a great blend of music styles and voices. I have song preferences, but the more I listen to it, these change. Take a listen and see what you think. Full Review »
